About the Book
Now the enchanting tales of King Arthur’s Camelot are an illustrated chapter storybook perfect for young readers!
Thousands upon thousands of years ago, Welsh and English folklore told of an unusually brave, kind, and fair leader named King Arthur who protected his people from Saxon invaders in the fifth century. Medieval author Sir Thomas Malory collected, translated, and retold the folktales of King Arthur in his 1485 book Le Morte d’Arthur, which remains one of the most famous books of Arthurian legend to this day.
Kid Classics: King Arthur is the thrilling new just-for-kids edition of the classic tales of King Arthur, abridged and retold for modern kids while staying true to the original Arthurian legends. It’s a story you can’t put down: Merlin guides young Arthur Pendragon to claim his throne as King of the Britons by pulling the sword Excalibur from the stone, and fantastical adventures ensue! Arthur nearly loses Excalibur to the Lady of the Lake, befriends Sir Lancelot, falls in love with Guinevere, and calls the best knights of the realm to join him at the Round Table, a place where fairness is paramount, and everyone has an equal say. With page after page of captivating illustrations, this magical hardcover will be the fought over favorite in your home and schoolroom!
